After going off my two color fill set I really enjoyed working with different colors and seeing what worked best with my story connotations. Over all my color swatches that I chose worked pretty well the first time around, so that was nice to not have to pull more swatches out. I, like I've said before, was really enjoying seeing my icons in the light sky blue tone, and that is what I finalized as one of my colors. Along with a nice rich brown, and a light peach color for my three color icons.
I've learned a lot through this process. First of all, when you're dealing with a certain subject, and trying to find a good color palette look for inspiration in images, and different art dealing with the similar subject matter. I think that's what really helped with this process. I used all images dealing with different picnics, and different interpretations of picnics, such as time era. Another important thing I've learned is do more than necessary. Bring lots of iteration to the table in order to have more of selection. I of course could have done more and more with in this process, but time is also an issue, so working in time constraints as well as effectively is quite the task. Also, there are always corrections to be made, like in my first round of icons, I've changed a few of them so they could work better with eachother and get more of my point across.
Here are all of my two/three/and one color icon sets:
